I enjoyed my stay here, it was my kind of hostel. Good vibes and a great common room, and the location was ideal - about 7 mins walk from the central train station and right inside the Old Town. Toilets and showers were reasonably clean and the room was nice and big and airy. I had a lot of power... More

We booked a double room for four nights and really enjoyed our stay. We weren't at the main location, but the secondary one which was really convenient as well and only had private rooms inside the building. There was no official HostelGate employee at that location, but we were provided with a code and key to enter the building from... More

Room and bathrooms are clean. It was my first time in an hostel and it was better than I thought. The kitchen is sooo nice and it's the perfect place to stay together and share nice moments with the other hosts. They allowed us to store our luggages at the reception even during the day we left the hostel. They... More

One of the best hostels I have stayed in, cheap prices, amazing social atmosphere (one night 19 of us went out together with half of that number only arriving that day), big clean kitchens and and social area. The beds are comfortable and the bunks aren't too squeaky. As other reviewers have said, the showers could do with some upgrades... More

Friends and I stayed here as part of the last night on a Busabout tour. This hostel is very well located, clean, spacious and the staff are very friendly and helpful! Staying here definitely contributed to our stay in Vilnius! I would definitely recommend this hostel.

Me and my crew had one and a half day to spend in Vilnius. Then this hostel is perfectly located since it is close to the old town city centre (where the most of the time was spent for us). The accomodation was clean and cozy, with top notch showers and toilets. Since we just spent a few hours awake... More

Hostel Gate is a pretty good... hostel. First of all its location is great, close the stations but also in the heart of the old town, making it easy to explore the city and find all the good sights.

Paid for a dorm for three nights but my first two nights I was the only one in there, which is the dream when you've been travelling for close to a year.
